    Color Matters for Durometer Differentiation
    When the same part is able to be used on two different products, the savings can be significant. Sometimes the fit is well-designed to be identical, but once testing is completed, two different hardnesses (durometers) might be needed. Using two different colors can help to insure that these identically shaped parts don't get mixed up during assembly.

    Custom Rubber Corp. has also developed alternate methods of distinguishing two very similar parts from each other. These include putting parts in a mixer with colored paint - the paint splatters on the part and clearly indicates one similar part from the other. 

    The molded rubber parts pictured are not in stock or for sale. These are examples of custom-manufactured products that illustrate Custom Rubber Corp.'s capabilities. Contact us with information on your needs.
